Taillefer is host of A
Broad Abroadpodcast which talks about the
extraordinary and exciting lives of expats. She interviews
people who packed up and left everything they knew to embark on the
adventure of adapting to a new culture. She shows how to
overcome language barriers and culture shock to experience new and
exciting lives abroad. Listen to their inspirational stories to get
insights on how to live in other countries and make the most out of
life! Mariza has lived in Brazil for the last 3 years and has used
her MBA experience to teach English in a business setting.
We talk about how she got out of the 9 to 5 life and the politics
within it to follow a dream she saw in a movie. We then talk about
her route from Bali, to India, to Italy and finally to Brazil where
she has lived for the last 3 years. There she has had to learn to
deal with the laid back culture and the new way of doing things.
She talks about the great mindset of what you can learn from the
setbacks instead of getting frustrated. She also talks about how
she got her job doing something she knows very much about where she
earns about $50/hr.
Her joke: "There are 10 types of people in the world, those who
understand binary and those who don't"
Can travel be more than just a fun thing to do? Could it also provide some benefit and learning experiences later in life? I have always thought this and this is why I have relentlessly travelled the world and now have been to over 80 countries. I have always thought that I was planting the seeds of wisdom while in faraway lands. Through experiences with foreign people, cultures, concepts, and ways of doing things I learned much more than anything I could've done while at home. I interview amazing guests, bestselling authors, scientists, successful business people, dating experts, travel junkies, polyglots (people who speak more than 3 languages), and anybody who I think is interesting for the growth of our listeners and I as people. I think by doing this we can plant the seeds of wisdom which will ultimately lead to our success in career, business, money, relationships, self-worth, and generally being a more well-rounded person. But it requires you to be active making this happen. What do you think?
